Alison is wearing our classic Woolrich Women’s Arctic Parka

Woolrich created a video series around four tastemakers that were filmed in their neighborhoods in New York and Toronto to discover what drives their passion and their love for the city they live in.  Meet Alison Stroming, our first feature in the “Discover My City” series as we explore her story and share her successes.

Alison Stroming, a classically trained ballerina and artist, has lived in New York City since she was adopted from Recife, Brazil.  She began dancing at the age of three and was accepted to The School of American Ballet where she started her formal ballet training.  Alison’s performances have premiered at The Juilliard School, Guggenheim Museum, The Metropolitan Opera House, The Kennedy Center, and is now in her second season with the Dance Theatre of Harlem in New York City.  As Alison pirouettes through NYC, she gives us a glance at her life and what being a New Yorker means to her.


“I find inspiration pretty much everywhere; from all my surroundings, from watching my coworkers, being on stage, meeting new people, and of course being in a city like New York. There’s inspiration everywhere here.”
